I attended the Elevation Conference in Boston and had such an amazing time. The conference team was attentive and of course the food in Boston was amazing.

The Elevation Conference began in 2016 as an offshoot of an existing youth convention at the Holy Tabernacle church in Dorchester. The new leadership team led by Michael aka Mike Mack wanted to change the format of the traditional convention and make it more diverse in its product offerings. While not willing to sacrifice the spiritual components and the desire to impact the youth they began to engage in culturally relevant conversations about race, sexuality, and urban apologetics. With the target demographic being urban youth the interconnectivity with Christian Hip Hop was organic adding in the fact that Mike Mack had recently began developing Gospel and Hip Hop artists himself the Elevation Conference as we now know it took shape. In 2019 the 501C3 Non profit organization Elevation Conference Inc. was formed with a refined mission statement.
